Licensure Exam Review Preparation

Our chapter brings you the best national trainer at the lowest price possible to help ensure you feel ready for your upcoming licensure exam! We offer this course three times per year as a full-day review session, allowing you to prepare for your licensure exam and earn CEUs.

Course Description

Our Licensure Exam Review Prep Course helps you prepare for your social work licensure exam by reviewing the structure and content of the exam, as well as strategies for test-taking. This includes reviewing sample questions and learning how to correctly interpret them, and learning how to avoid the most common pitfalls in order to increase your competence and confidence.

This course does not review specific content areas in depth; rather, it outlines the areas of knowledge, skills, and aptitudes that are covered on the exam, and discusses how you may asked about those areas on the exam.

This course is for ALL exam categories; Bachelors, Masters, Advance Generalist, and Clinical. 


The social work exam guide
Your registration includes your own copy of the social work exam guide by Springer Publishing ($90 retail value) AND a personal code to download the app version of the book and its supplemental materials. This guide offers a wealth of test-taking strategies to foster exam confidence; includes a practice test that mirrors the exam (with explanations of the correct answers); and helps you identify weak areas so you will know what to focus on to pass the licensure exam.
